. they came up with instead a very, very weak answer. harry reid caved into the republicans on this, i hate to say it. sol many democrats were saying this is going to be fine because now, we all agree that you need 60. we didn't get rid of it. they can use it. they don't have to come to the floor and talk at that talk, but it's going to work. it's going to work because republicans have greedp agreed they will filibuster for stuff that's really important. when harry reid and mitch mcconnell agree this is really worth it. damn if, we said at the time this was phony, it was not going to work, it was not going to make any change. republicans were going to abuse it. they would never abide by that agreement. two weeks ago. republicans trotted it out yesterday, put a filibuster on the nomination of chuck hagel to be our next secretary of defense, and they won. you need 60 votes to get over it. and the most they could get with the democrats and four republicans was 58 votes t he lost by one vote. harry reid ended up having to vote no. that way, by voting know he
responsible for passing the president's agenda, senate leader harry reid, the gatekeeper only on "this week." >>> plus, all the week's politics and super bowl predictions on our powerhouse roundtable with nobel prize-winning economist paul krugman of "the new york times," former hewlett-packard ceo carly fiorina and jorge ramos of univision, congressman lou barletta and abc's matthew dowd. >>> hello again. president obama says that our headliner has the toughest job in washington. top republicans complain that he makes it harder than he needs to be, and no single senator will have more influence over the president's agenda than harry reid, who we met for in the capitol on friday for this exclusive interview. he was feisty and confident, especially on this week's top issue, immigration reform. >> it has to get done. we have to work hard to get it done. it's really easy to write principles, to write legislation, much harder, and once we write the legislation, we have to get it passed, but i think things are looking really good. they're looking good for a number of reason, the right thing to d
started the fire instead of trying to put the fire out. >> we tried to get change cpi, and harry reid took it off the table. and the president claims he wants change cpi, but is harry reid more powerful than barack obama? >> that's a good question. >> no, it's not. no, harry reid is not a more powerful guy. but i do agree in the end, if the president will stop demagoguing, and if he'll stop running a presidential campaign, a permanent campaign that david brooks is talking about, al, i think you're right. i think the president, at the end, may actually make some decisions that will upset his own base, change cpi, on hopefully -- hopefully he won't take paul krugman's position and say we'll worry about medicare in 2025 when it starts to melt down. hopefully he'll be a little more responsible than that. i think he will. >> yes. >> but the problem, i think, goes back to mika's point. in all of the attacking the president, he has a plan on the table. you can say is demagoguing. the revenues that he's putting on the table from the taxes add up. the republicans have just come back saying, we're n
to settle on passing background legislation and calling that a win. on abc over the weekend, harry reid pointedly would not commit to supporting an assault weapons ban. >> i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. i think everyone acknowledges we should do some background checks. >> reid said the senate would move the bill through the judiciary committee, it's unlikely to include a gun ban. though reid has said california senator dianne feinstein will have an opportunity to present the provision as an amendment once the bill reaches the senate floor. remember there's a whole bunch of red tape democrats want to actively cascade a vote against the assault weapons ban so they can show they are pro-gun. >> the super bowl ad new york city mayor's group ran in the d.c. market focused on one part of the gun control bills and that's the background check, one pointing out the nra at one time supported closing the gun show loophole. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory, instant criminal background checks for every sale at
aid to majority leader harry reid told the "wall street journal" that the bill will not include a ban on military style weapons. members continue to vilify efforts at increasing gun safety in a way that only they can. >> they demonize people who are legal gun owners and obama, oh, look at hem. he cares about the children. screw you. you think we don't care about the children? you're the one who won't do anything about the mentally ill. >> 99.99% of the gun owners of america are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today. would you leave us the hell alone? go after the nut jobs. go after the murderers because i don't know any. >> joy, let's talk about this. when you lead in with ted nugent and ann coulter -- >> doesn't get much better. >> always so much to talk about. insofar as we need to come together to get anything enacted. it does seem like the republican party or those in the conservative wing of the republican party have dug their heels in in a firm fashion. >> right. >> gin that, what did you make of the president's, we'll call it, push on the assault weapons
was being bailed out by taxpayers. >> senator harry reid has filed for cloture on the nomination of chuck hagel. that means the senate will vote to end the debate friday. 60 boats will be needed to go through confirmation. john mccain revealed he was reconsidering his promise not to filibuster the nomination. senator collins now says she will not vote for his confirmation. she cites the concerns about his views on those critical threat facing the u.s. >> a protest over the keystone pipeline lead the rest of the white house today. robert f. kennedy jr.. protesters are demanding president obama reject the pipeline. they worry about environmental damage and a possible oil spill. to go a lot of talk recently about how to reduce gun violence. -- >> a lot of talk recently about how to reduce gun violence. northern virginia bureau chief joins us live from springfield. i understand this is about the straw man purchases. >> that is right. people who legally buy guns for people who cannot legally buy them for themselves. bob macdonald could be a safety task force and now promoting eight different b
less agree with the democratic controlled senate in harry reid. politically, finding the consensus to do it, there is an acceptance around the capital that if an agreement is going to be reached, it will have to be like the fiscal cliff deal was, like the transportation bill was. speaker boehner has to pass it with a lot of democratic votes. that is a politically risky thing to do. in the crisis will lead him to do it. getting a majority of republicans to vote for a deal that can also be agreed to with 60 votes in the senate, there is no way to do it right now. host: todd zwillich is a reporter on capitol hill. lesley clark spends much of her time at the white house for mcclatchy newspapers. we will focus on sequestration and we will break it down topic by topic. later in the week, we will look housing and education issues. we hope you tune in all week as we provide more specific details on what will happen and how it could potentially impact you. let me go back to bob woodward. it is one of the opinion pages driving the day. he says the president and jack lew have this wrong. thes
a a president to lead. all they have to do is come up with and sit down with harry reid and senate democrats and work out a plan that they can pass. bill: what about that? democratic congressman adam schiff out of california is on the appropriations committee. welcome to "america's newsroom.". what do you think about the speaker? he is putting all this on the president and democrats in the senate. time for them to step up. >> well a couple things. this is the same speaker that said he got 98% of what he wanted in the whole deal that set up the sequester. but we're getting a very mixed message. we're getting a message, the problem we want the other house to go first. or the problem we want the president to propose something. the president has proposed something. i don't think the america people really care about who's idea this originally was or who got 98% of the what. they want the economy to --. bill: sequester in my own state. that will --. bill: let me get that in a a moment. i don't think anybody is arguing that. you call this a man-made crisis. why wait until friday to sit down and tal
. in certain respect, the president was speaking to harry reid, the democratic leader as much as he was speaking to mitch mcconnell. >> absolutely he was. and the nra has been kind of close to harry reid. they have not been adversarial to one another for years. and there is the rural culture of firearms in this country. but from what i'm told last night, they're going to try to get as much as they can on this. and the president is all in on this. the democrats are all in on it. it now comes down to the votes. house speaker john boehner was pressed about giving people the votes they deserve on gun safety today. here it is. >> how do we address violence in our society, how do we take meaningful steps to reduce that violence? and as i made clear for weeks, when the senate -- if the senate acts, we'll be happy to take a look at what they do. >> neera, is this a failure of leadership for boehner to just kick it over to the senate, we'll see what they do first? what do you make of that? >> i mean, i don't think americans define leadership by saying things like when the senate acts, we'll
. >> on the other side of capitol hill, senate majority leader harry reid says it's the republicans' fault. no butts about it. >> i think he should understand who is sitting on their posterior. the speaker is doing nothing to try to pass anything over there. >> well, the president didn't engage in the posterior pow-wow but did play the blame game. >> there are too many republicans in congress right now who refuse to compromise even an inch when it comes to closing tax loopholes and special interest tax breaks. and that's what's holding things up right now. >> "outfront" tonight democratic congressman chris van holland. not every day we get to hear that word used on capitol hill. >> i will put aside the posterior politics right now. other than that, let's get at it. >> the president criticized republicans for their unwillingness to raise taxes in order to reduce the deficit but i wanted to ask you this, because you know the numbers. the tax policy center has said that nearly 80% of american households have gotten a higher federal tax bill because of the fiscal cliff deal you all did at the beginning
for everything. well, that's not the rule. >> senate majority harry reid suggested it's pure politics. >> i guess to be able to run for the senate as a republican in most places of the country, you need to have a resume that says, i help filibuster one of president's nominees. maybe that helps. maybe that keeps the tea party guy from running against you. but this should not be politics. >> senator john mccain's response to politics, you played politics, too. >> in 1989 they filibustered or basically stopped him from coming to the floor of the senate. we didn't have a secretary of defense for three months. it didn't seem to bother harry reid or carl levin at the time. >> i want to bring in david nak can amura. >> hi, chris. >> what happened here? did the president misread how this was going to be? >> this has been something that he's dealt with for the past couple years. the white house thinks that republicans are purposefully trying to sort of bottle up not only these higher level appointees but lower level judges. it's not that they didn't expect it. we got an e-mail yesterday from senior white
on gun control and it happens to be a democrat by the name of harry reid. >> right, a democrat by the name of harry reid, who has opposed some of the very kind of things that president obama is calling for a vote on this time. so, yeah, i think the president should nudge people in his own party to do the things that he wants them to do. we haven't seen him do it on gun control, certainly didn't see him do it on immigration and never did it on senate budge proposal. >> megyn: she calls it an empty gesture untied to political reality. if you watched that moment, he seemed to be implying that there were lawmakers there and one would assume it was lawmakers on the opposite aisle from the president who are going to stop gabby giffords and other victims of gun violence from getting a vote on this legislation. that's not the reality right now in the u.s. congress. >> you're right and look, anytime the president speaks in a venue like this, he's got several audiences and clearly what he's saying is not for the members of congress in front of him. as you point out. harry reid could have
attack in benghazi. majority harry reid plans to bring it up at the end of the month. >>> president obama again defended his administration's use of drones in the wear on terror. he did admit that the public should know about how the program works. >> what i think is absolutely true is that it's not sufficient for citizens to just take my word for it that we're doing the right thing. >> a classified memo recently revealed u.s. citizens suspected of terrorism have been targets of drone strikes. >>> today, a bail hearing for oscar pistorius, the olympic athlete and double amputee charged with murdering his girlfriend inside his upscale south african home, he arrived at court 24 hours after his arrest, he was taken into custody on thursday, after police said that he fatally shot his girlfriend reeva steenkamp four times. >>> police have given few details about the case other than to say that steenkamp died of multiple gunshot wounds. >>> billion-dollar bettor. the former mayor of san diego is in quite a financial hole and she'll repay $2 million that she took from a charity and gambled away.
of strategy and mission they deserve. >> senate majority leader harry reid foos feels that the republicans are more concerned about their futures than what's best. >> nothing is going to change in the next ten days in the qualifications of chuck hagel. the ability to run for senate as a republican in most places in the country you need to have a resume that says filibuster one of the president's nominees. this shouldn't be politics. >> republicans argue that it's all part of the process. it's not uncommon to uphold c confirmation of one of the president's nominee. >> reporter: it isn't the filibuster. anymore than it was the case than in 2005, 2006 and other times when we had a nominee put forth by president bush who was objected to by the democrats. >> senate john mccain offered a different rational. one that dates back to the bush presidency. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because he was a republican he attacked president bush mercilessly at one point said that he was the worst president since herbert hoover and said that the surge was the worst blunder since the viet
with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> the president will be in newport news today to discuss the local economy, particularly military spending. the president met at the white house. they are critical about how the president is handling the situation. >> now is a time for him to show leadership, proposed $85 billion, propose the are you ductions in a more balanced way. every government has to do it. >> i could not be more frustrated. how many more times are the governors going to have to pick up the mess of washington, d.c. my kids could go find $83 billion out of a $4 trillion budget. this is not rocket science. this is an inability to want to get to work. >> we could provide an alternative. we have shown you can do it. we have done it state by state. it's time to do it at the capital to make it happen. >> joe biden addressed the association about the politics. >> people are tired are being tired. then they are ready to get up and move. you know that. it's happening in your states. you probably feel in your fingertips more than most of us do here in washington. i think they a
examine his record and views on israel and iran. senate majority leader harry reid hopes to bring a final vote to the floor when congress goes back in session next monday. >>> residents in coastal new england are cleaning up after yet another blast of winter weather following the big blizzard last weekend. parts of the northeast including massachusetts got up to six inches of snow on sunday. the winter snowstorm then headed north into maine, carrying with it strong, gusty winds and low visibility. here's more on that and our national forecast, nbc meteorologist bill karins. >> a bad storm for new england once again. wind chills negative numbers, 50 mile-per-hour winds. wasn't as bad as the blizzard two weeks ago. now the pattern switches. now the west coast will get a storm. >> the snow was nice. always nice. >> nice to look outside the window for a day, maybe. we have snow heading into areas and even southern california. interesting weather pattern will take shape as a big storm dips down along the west coast, move across the country. pushing into the central plains and much of the inter

and views on israel and iran. senate majority leader harry reid hopes to bring a final vote to the floor when congress goes back in session next monday. >>> so residents in coastal new england are cleaning up after yet another blast of winter weather following the big blizzard last weekend. parts of the northeast including massachusetts got up to six inches of snow on sunday. the winter snowstorm then headed north into maine, carrying with it strong, gusty winds and low visibility. with that we bring in nbc meteorologist bill karins with more on the storm plus the national forecast. i am sure you have. >> i'm done -- >> you've been working round the clock. >> some didn't see snow, but some did in north carolina and south carolina. myrtle beach even saw snow. it was the winds that were biting, so cold out there. let me show you the storm. this was just as huge and powerful as the storm the weekend before. this of just a little farther off the coast. that's why we spared areas from new york city, d.c., philly, up there, even most of connecticut didn't see heavy snow. this was primarily jus
the blame on harry reid. house had a budget, maybe good or but the senator never let it be brought to the floor so give and take negotiations. however, where i casted the blame back at president obama he submitted the budget is why didn't he pick up the phone and tell his party leader, harry reid, get a budget so we can at least have a conversation. >> listen, these are such important issues. i hate these back room deals. we voted on the fiscal cliff at 1:40 in the morning on new year's day. >> greta: who read it? >> i prevented 99% of americans from getting an income tax increase and money flowing out of the private sector to the inefficient government sector. i knew the basic thrust of doing business. we should have regular order which would be the house passes a budget, senate passes a budget and you reconcile that and that is the framework for the committee work. >> like the president was supposed to submit a budget. there is no regard for deadline. if the rest of us in america ignored deadlines. if i showed up at 10:15, how long would i keep my job. >> america is bankrupt. onl
such a liability for the democrats that harry reid and other democrats throw him overboard, then chris cities -- chris cities gets to name replacement. the other part of this is as you point out that if the fbi can go up the food chain because the part that they are looking at is influence pedaling, allegations of corruption that perhaps senator menendez his official office to work with his donor to pass out some business favors, perhaps, to this dozier. these are the allegations, this is what is out there. if they cannot just get to menendez but perhaps to a broader net of even bigger fish like the clintons who have been known to work with this donor, then i think the democrats have a wider scandal on their hands. >> bill: i think there is scandal here. >> guilt by association. >> bill: at this point, correct, there is no hard evans to show anything. as dr. crowley pointed out. >> that's what i have to call her. >> bill: you don't get a warrant or don't have fbi resources on a fishing expedition. >> innocent until proven guilty. wouldn't talk to the fbi and men then des who won by 19 points.
and brennan. harry reid said he's not going to recognize the hold. i think it has to be worked out behind closed doors on capitol hill. my understanding is they're hoping for a hagel vote tomorrow. i know brennan has the votes on the floor to win. it is a question of when it comes up for a vote. >> bill: senator feinstein announcing yesterday or this morning that she is scheduling a vote on john brennan in the senate intelligence committee but not until they come back. they're out next week. for whatever reason, right? valentine's day. i don't know. that's presidents' day week, of course. the week after that, when they come back that she will -- she'll schedule a vote. and then tomorrow, the president is going to -- >> chicago. >> bill: and then to florida too, i believe. >> he's taking a little presidents' day get away in florida over the weekend. before then, he's going to chicago. the topic there is what he calls the ladders the middle class the various programs to help get people jobs and better-paying jobs but i think he will also make a big pitch for his gun violence package in chic
the most extreme element in their own party through the primary processes, and that's why harry reid right now is running the senate. >> but there are -- i mean, you saw the front page of the business section of "the new york times" yesterday. there are people who want these assault weapons, and they're selling off the shelves at twice the price. twice the price. i was online looking at guns. it's unbelievable how they're marketed. people like them. people in america feel they need these multiple -- what's that? >> did you buy one? >> no, i was just trying to understand. i personally don't get it. but there is -- it's not just an extreme fringe tiny bit of society. there are people out there who support this. >> i tell you what. >> in our society. >> there aren't enough of those people out there that feel like they have to have an assault weapon to carry presidential elections or senate elections. >> there's enough to make gun manufacturers a lot of money, to make the gun lobby powerful, to make people like wayne la bpie e pierre -- >> think about the money he makes by ginning up fear in a
, harry reid, and said this is the solution. >> all right. meanwhile, senator lindsay graham is suggesting one potential -- >> i'm sorry, could i interrupt? i had a munchkin in my mouth. >> no, you can't have those. you're supposed to have your greek yogurt. >> i'm trying to make a point with a visual aid. this is like defense spending. done. gone. >> before the day has even started, you've just -- give those to me. >> i'm not homer simpson. what do you make of what woodward said? >> the president's in charge. he's got to figure out a way to stop the sequester. i think the symbolism of the last couple weeks haven't been great. he's not really out there leading a new path towards figuring out how to avoid something he says is a bad idea and promised as a candidate wouldn't happen. >> okay. john, joe's mouth is full. what do you think? >> i'm hap think the sequester be a bad thing. >> everyone says that. who's going to take the blame? who should? >> if it ends up going into effect, i think they're all going to take a lot of blame and they should. it's fair enough to say, if bob's reporting i
to reduce spending. we couldn't come to an agreement on that. so jack lew came to harry reid and said, here's our suggestion. do a sequestration. harry reid rejected it initially. jack lex said, what if we do half of it in defense spending? so an automatic across-the-board cut if we can't find a way to reduce spending in other ways we'll do an across-the-board cut with half of it in defense and the other half of it from other parts of the budget. harry reid agreed with jack le w, the president's chief of staff, so then it came to the senate and went to the house where we begrudgingly agreed. we didn't want to see this. i don't think the white house wanted to see sequestration as well. but this plan that was put in place, the house, the senate and the white house all agreed to was to find some way to reduce spending by $1.2 trillion in long-term spending. the first option was the select committee, the supercommittee, as it was called. it obviously failed in its task. shortly after that, the house of representatives said that the select committee has failed in this task. we cannot have seques
like breitbart and the daily caller. this is harry reid being questioned about this initially doing the whole look at the source thing and now backing off and saying this is what fbi investigations are all about and to the point of harry reid initially coming out and menendez saying this is the right wing blogospea osphere. i don't think that is a good thing to tell the breitbart people who took down anthony weiner. there is plenty of evidence. >> not evidence. >> sean: coming up next. >> you are not a woman stuck in her house having to defend her children, not able to leave her child. not able to go seek safety. on the phone with 911 and she he cannot get the police there fast enough to protect her child. >> gun rights activist gail trotter's powerful testimony captured it the attention of law makers on capitol hill. tonight she is here to explain why women across the country should be paying close attention to the president's assault on your second amendment rights. log on to hannity live and follow the live show, share you thoughts on the program. just go to hannity live.fox news
